The Guide comes with comprehensive directory of Boston area non-profit organizations offering service opportunities for teens who may be looking to fulfill school requirements or find a rewarding after-school experience.
The Guide to Community Service categorizes the 150 non-profits by organization type, which encourages teens to find a volunteer opportunity in a field that sparks their curiosity, highlights their strengths and explores possible career interests. Categories featured in the guide include: Advocacy with a Cause, Aging with Dignity, Animal Rights & Rescue, Community Resources, Cultural Organizations, Health & Well-Being, Homelessness & Hunger, People with Disabilities, Preserving the Environment, Promoting Volunteerism and Youth. Individual entries in the guide provide an overview of each non-profit’s objective and list the appropriate volunteer representative’s contact information for each opportunity. Volunteer opportunities are also indexed by town and alphabetically at the end of the guide.
